I was introduced to the work of Will Moses at the Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck last weekend. His folk art paintings are a family tradition going back to his great grandmother—the iconic Grandma Moses. His work conveys the authenticity that is a hallmark of all great American folk art, a simple beauty that is charming, wistful and, in our post millennial world, refreshingly uncomplicated. His compositions are filled with the everyday activities of everyday people. Yet they seem rooted in their lives in a way that we can only dream about today. For more of Will’s work, click here.
